After losing to Arsenal over the weekend, Manchester United have a great chance to bounce back against Nottingham Forest on Wednesday in the first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final, but it’s a match they can’t ignore as Steve Cooper’s team stabilized the ship. Forest have been unbeaten in four league games in a row since they beat Manchester United 3-0 and Marcus Rashford led the Red Devils to the Champions League spot. But with a trophy at the end of the tunnel, both teams will be looking to be at the top of their game.

Storylines

Nottingham Forest: Normally Cooper’s biggest problem facing United would be goalkeeper Dean Henderson’s absence on loan, but with Henderson injured, Wayne Hennessy will be his replacement. Now it’s another game for Chris Wood to integrate to lead the line. With Morgan Gibbs-White taking shape, United will need to be wary of set-piece chances, with Forest having the creativity and goals to make them pay.

Manchester United: The return of Casemirio after the disqualification should help the defense in this match. Wout Weghorst is likely to start as he integrates into the squad and looks to score his first goal for United. Defensively, he was a pressing force and helped set up counterattacks, but he was also added as an aerial target for Luke Shaw and Christian Eriksen, which has yet to materialize. Manager Eric Ten Hag will also be able to rest some of his defenders as United have to keep an eye on upcoming Premier League fixtures.

Forecast

It will be a tighter game than expected due to the rotation, but Marcus Rashford will see United have the upper hand after the first 90 minutes. Choose: Nottingham Forest 1, Manchester United 2
